About

Necessity Was Again the Mother of Invention. . .

As many times is the case, necessity was again the mother of invention. Decades ago, I was a member of a U.S. Army battalion based in southern Germany. The unit mission was public relations throughout western Europe. Our team conducted public military demonstrations and provided tactical demonstrations for allied military groups such as the British War College. The unit needed a photographer, but had none. So with youthful enthusiasm, a PX-purchased 35 mm camera and access to the base darkroom, I quickly started down the road to a lifetime of photography.

Back in civilian life, as an avid outdoorsman, I combined nature photography with my love of hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, and fishing. My professional career provided the opportunity to travel nationally and internationally, including Canada, Europe, the UK, and South America. My camera gear always followed along.

As years passed, I recognized the rural, agricultural landscape of the American South was quickly disappearing. In an effort to capture the essence of the region, I refocused my efforts to produce fine art photography I felt would be worthy of a broader audience.
